Northern Lights - Saskatchewan
Discover Canada's Aurora Borealis

Saskatchewan Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, is a display of lights moving across the northern skies in a wave of colors. There are Saskatchewan tour groups and wilderness resorts which provide a front row seat for sightseeing this natural phenomenon.

The light show attracts people from all around the world to the northern regions of Saskatchewan, Canada every year. The best viewing months are during the months of October to March. It is then when the skies glow with green, yellow, blue or red waves of color.

The wave of colored lights of the Aurora Borealis is a chemical reaction. The lights are created form the mixture of electromagnetic radiation (beamed down from the sun) and the earths atmosphere. The Northern Lights are the result of the gases mixing together high above our heads.

The Saskatchewan tour groups and resorts in the north provide accommodations, meals and transportation to the Northern Lights viewing grounds. Accommodations could be a lodge or cabin. Transportation to the site could be in the form of cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling or dog sledding.
